Spring at Oatlands

After we toured the gardens at  Little Oatlands last week, we went next door to Oatlands to see the gardens, although we've been there before.

The Good: The manor and grounds at Oatlands are open to visitors from spring through fall.  Established in 1798, this old plantation is operated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The Random: There are several outbuildings on the property, including some barns.

The Fun: There are many paths to explore on the property, some of which wind through hidden gardens.
